Most mornings, I make a smoothie with kale or spinach (start your day off with some greens!), almond milk, frozen banana, frozen fruit (usually mango, strawberry, raspberry, etc.), and a big dollop of either peanut butter or plain greek yogurt. Sometimes I add chia seeds, cucumber, and tomato. I usually use my smoothie as a way to use up fruit and some veggies that are about to go bad. I also swear by Ezekial english muffins with cream cheese. So yummy! And I also like flavored greek yogurt with bear naked granola. Aaand I love oatmeal too. I have oatmeal down to a science! 1/2 cup of oatmeal, 1/2 cup of almond milk, 1/2 sliced banana. Microwave for 2 minutes. Add scoop of peanut butter, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and whip it up. Add the rest of the banana sliced on top, a few chocolate chips if you're feeling crazy or a sprinkle of nuts. Delish!
